Launched in 1650, the Prins Willem was probably the largest vessel in the service of the Dutch East Indies Company. She sailed with a crew of 254, plus 22 wives and children. After only one commercial voyage, she was taken into the Dutch Navy and refitted as a warship. She fought in the Battle of Duins in 1652 under the command of Admiral Witte de Witt.

The Prins Willem was probably the largest square stern ship of the fleet of the Dutch East India Company. Fitted out at Middleburg in 1649-1650, the Prince William was subsequently modified for use as a warship.

In addition to demolishing the forecastle and the stern bulkhead, 6 firing ports were added, three on each side. For a brief period, the Prins Willem was the flagship of the famous Admiral Witte de Witt. Returned later to the Company, it once again traded with the Indies between 1653 and 1660. Our model is a detailed and faithful reconstruction of the ship fitted out by the Dutch East India Company for commercial traffic.

The Corel Wappen Prins Willem wooden ship model is an accurate reproduction of the real Duct armed East Indiaman.

Corels's Prins Willem ship model kit is based on a 17th century model on display at the Rijsmuseum of Amsterdam, depicting the Prins Willem as a warship. Construction is double plank-on-bulkhead with pre-cut parts. Ready-to-use fittings of fine hardwoods, gilded cast metal and photo-etched brass are typical of Corel's attention to detail and quality. Generous instructions and highly detailed plans help you build an impressive model.
